Artists on Audiences: Three Ontario Artistic Directors Discuss

Friday March 24th, 2:30pm-4:30pm, University of Toronto Mississauga

Sponsored by the University of Toronto Mississauga Department of English and Drama

Event Details

Date/Time: Friday March 24th, 2:30-4:30pm


Location: Instructional Centre, room 270. University of Toronto Mississauga Campus, 3359 Mississauga Road, Mississauga, Ontario

Following broader discussions about diversifying and renewing theatre audiences, made more pressing in the age of COVID, this roundtable explores the partnership and potential points of connection between theatres and audience researchers. It will also advance critical discussions in audience studies by thinking through how we invite, imagine, and cast Ontario audiences.


The event will feature a moderated discussion with Ontario Artistic Directors, including Theatre Passe Muraille’s Marjorie Chan, MT Space’s Pam Patel, and b current’s marcel stewart about engaging audiences, followed by light catered reception! 


We’d like to thank our major sponsor, the Department of English and Drama at the University of Toronto Mississauga for making this event possible.
